Songs sung by Arthur Fear (baritone)
Three Odes of Anacreon
1 Away, away, you men of rules. 2 Fill me, boy, as deep a draught. 3 Golden hues of life are fled
When comes my Gwen ?
And yet I love her till I die Love is a Bable
A Lover's Garland
At the hour the long day ends Under the Greenwood Tree
Arthur Fear was born at Blaina, Monmouthshire, in 1902. He won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music where he studied under the famous maestro Thomas Meux , and it was after a students' performance of Falstaff that the critics hailed his singing as remarkable '. He was immediately engaged by the British National Opera Company and later by the Royal Opera Company at Covent Garden. He is recognised as one of our finest artists not only over here but also in America where he has made frequent appearances.

: ' AMERICA TODAY '

' The Negro'
Melville J. Herskovits
Professor Herskovits, of North-western University, Illinois, is to speak about the striking proportion of Negroes to Whites (over ten per cent. in the United States, one in three in the South), the difficulties they have encountered, and their contribution, to American civilisation.
They have influenced speech, for where did white children learn to speak but from their Negro ' Mammies ' ? From Negro songs came the elements that developed into jazz, while even the cuisine of the American South is influenced by African cooking traditions brought over by the Negro.
He points to two significant industrial developments of the present day: the rule adopted by the Committee of Industrial Organisation of no racial discrimination in its unions, and the formation of Tenant Farmers' unions in the South, whereby Whites and Negroes meet and discuss their common problems on terms of equality.

: National 6

A play by Jean-Jacques Bernard
Translated by John Leslie Frith

The action takes place in a little house in Burgundy on National 6, one of the French main roads
Time, Today

Michael, a retired civil servant, and his daughter Francine were dreamers both; he had dreamed for years of the house he was at last to buy near Chalon, just by a bend in 'National 6' - an artery taking traffic to the Riviera and beyond. He would watch the cars slowing at the bend - it was the next best thing to travel when you had no money. Francine, too, loved the road for the same and for a different reason. One day her Prince Charming would come this way, and stop, and knock at the door. She was fey, and sure of it. He came, his car having crashed: Robert, a young painter, with his father Antoine, a novelist. From then on the dream did not go the way of dreams.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
